This is a fable about fear of the unknown. One apon a time a little girl and her Mum went swimming at Bulcock Beach. The girl didn’t like the still water much, she liked riding the waves and she thought there were stonefish in the Passage which would spike her if she walked on one and manta rays that could sting. But it was a very hot day and Kings Beach was a long way away. She swam for a while and then the current started to stir up sand. She couldn’t see where she was putting her feet. Then it happened. She walked on something slippery and slimy that was probably a fish! Remembering the stone fish and the manta ray she asked her mother to watch for it while she walked out of the water. It can’t have been a stone fish because it didn’t spike her and she lived to swim another day – at Kings Beach 🙂 The girl grew up, studied and lived in Brisbane but never lost her love of the Coast. Once she was old enough to understand, she realised that she was so worried about the fish because she didn’t know what it was and there were bad things it could have been. She wasn’t scared of fish when she could see them. She had kept and hand fed pet fish for many years. Maybe we are all worried when we face the unknown. This is a true story – how do I know? Because I was the little girl. I always spent holidays at Caloundra with my parents and for some reason Dad had had to go back to Brisbane that day. I recently had 20 minutes to spend in Caloundra and paid a very quick visit to Bulcock Beach. Would I have gone swimming if I had time? Probably! But I would watch out 🙂 2015-03-12 16.10.11
